Hey all, Welcome to the weekend!
I am going to keep it brief tonight, not because I don’t love ranting about things like how I listened to 8 hours of mixtapes continuously today whilst driving from Chamonix to the coast and am now exhausted and have an unusual craving for Camembert cheese and a usual craving for beer, but because its Friday and you have probably had a beer or two yourself (well deserved – go you!) and want me to cut straight to the chase and deliver Fridays mix to you. So this week I have decided to put the Funk aside because Itchy & Scratchy DJ’s have produced a STELLAR glitch-hop mix for us.
I’m a big fan of these guys, firstly their Ruff guide to Bass Hop mix earlier this year (get it here) was an absolute winner, then when I stumbled apon them accidentally at boomtown festival by following the rumble of some serious bass, to find them all lined up with a million turntables ( ok there was 4 decks between 3 of them) putting on a seriously good show, I was totally blown away by the amount of talent I was witnessing.
I don’t listen to a lot of glitch-hop, I do like it, but I’m a bit choosy and not too bothered unless its done well.. then its great! And this mix is a perfect example of glitch-hop being done very very well, so I decided I had to share it, and if you put it on tonight before you head out to party I’m sure it will go down a treat! ESPECIALLY if you are lucky enough to be going to Goodgroove presents A-skills and B-side tonight in Bath. (Yes that is jealousy you are detecting)
So here’s this Friday’s mix, remember to click the little heart on the soundcloud link to show the love, comment on the track to show your appreciation and click the mighty “like” button below to score me a few bonus points that can be spent on cheese and beer and ill be back on monday with another mix! (Hmm that wasn’t brief.. rantless blog fail)
Have a good weekend Ghetto Funk Crew!
If you have a mix you would like me to consider for the mixtape dig, please send it to:
